Diploma in Bible and Missiological Studies
The Diploma in Bible and Missiological Studies degree is designed to help the student concentrate his/her studies in the area of Missions as well as obtain adequate and sufficient knowledge in the major fields of Bible and Theology. It enables the students to effectively communicate the Christian vision to a multi-cultural and multi-religious society by being aware of the history and challenges of Evangelical missions as well as to formulate guidelines and strategies for church growth. The program also introduces students to personal research in areas in which they are taught through courses, seminars, and assigned theological research papers. This stage also serves as an introduction to later study.
As a Seminary we aim to provide you with an environment where you will be able to prepare yourself for future involvement in a range of Christian ministries or employment opportunities where you will be able to use your academic knowledge and practical skills developed while studying here. Specifically, we expect that you will develop the ability to think clearly about theological issues in Christian life and ministry and that you will be able to demonstrate clear communication skills. This will happen by you becoming aware of the issues related to the development, thought and practice of Christianity and will result in you being able to apply this knowledge and continue in further research according to your own interests and abilities.
What You Will Study
The modules within this program cover the major fields of missiology. Being foundational for missiological studies, a wide range of courses is also taught in the major fields of theology: Biblical Exegesis, Systematic Theology, Church History, and Practical Theology.
